  1. Your handmade igloo is adorable Gail, what a fabulous idea... and thanks for the recipe. I like the way you've secured the sentiment over the edge of the tag, and the pop of bright yellow really livens things up. Great job!

  2. Genius use of that texture paste!! Love this so much. Gail!! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Food and/or Drink” Challenge! Beautiful colors and design. Well done!

  3. Will have to give this texture paste recipe a try. I use spackling paste bought at Home Depot which costs less than Tim Holtz Texture Paste that I had and the TH Texture paste dried up in container making it unusable and having to waste what was left if not used in a quicker amt of time.
